Overview

In this bright new board book, the author describes differences between her dog and cat, who don't always get along. Her dog barks; her cat meows. Her dog's tongue is wet; her cat's tongue is rough. But the story ends on a delightfully sweet note when the author also tells us what the dog and cat have in common — a love of pizza and a love of their owner.

I received this book free of charge from Netgally in exchange for my honest review. I have the highest recommendation of all for this book: My son LOVED it! The pictures were bright and fun, and they even transferred to my Kindle so that my son could enjoy them! He's used to me reading him picture books on my Kindle so he wasn't surprised that since you can't see both pages at the same time, sometimes you read the words that go with the picture BEFORE you see the picture, but I think that's part of the fun for him! This book starts out telling all the different ways dogs and cats are different, and ends with all the ways they are alike, and how special each one is. I think it has a great message that people can be different from each other, but that doesn't mean they aren't all special in their own ways! This was a really quick picture book, but when you're talking about little ones with short attention spans, that's a good thing! I really enjoyed reading it to my son, and he really enjoyed hearing it! It has become one of my son's favorite go-to books - the ones he brings me to read to him if he just wants some quick time with me :D

This is a simple, young child's book detailing a few basic differences between a dog and a cat. Things such as a cat meows but a dog barks, cats eat tuna, dogs eat steak, and dogs fetch balls while cats chase yarn. The 29 pages are readable in minutes. The illustrations are bold, colorful and match the words without fail. With the book laid flat, the pages do not match up as drawn. On the right will be a dog with trim that extends to the next page, which is on the next set of pages. Maybe this mismatch is deliberate, yet I think the book would be esthetically nicer had the two pages actually been together on the same foldout. This book is a very basic book for very young children, which might appeal to someone with both a dog and a cat as pets. Note: received from NetGalley, courtesy of publisher

The author talks to the reader explaining the differences of her dog and cat. Very simple sentences that are good for young readers. The illlustrations are very simple. In fact, the author is an artist so it doesn't surprise me that the words are as simple as they are.

A delightful bright and colourful children’s book sharing some of the differences and similarities between a pet cat and dog. It has very little text and is a book that youngsters will find engaging, with early readers quickly learning the ‘story’ then ‘reading’ along with an adult. This is a great story for showing that whilst there are significant differences in the author’s cat and dog they also have important things in common. It is a delightful way for young children to learn more about both pets and encourage them to learn to love books and reading, too. I was gifted a copy of this book by the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.

Are you a dog person or a cat person? In this book, the narrator has both a dog and cat. The simple story told in single sentences shows the difference in the personality and behaviour of cats and dogs. Even though they have many differences, they also have similarities. Bold bright drawings add to the draw of this story to young children. You can also use this book to discuss the differences in people that can still be friends even though they do not like and/or do the same things.

So what is the difference between a cat and a dog? Well, settle down and let Ashlee’s words fill you in. Within this book you will find numerous pages which tell you the differences between these four-legged friends. From their tongues, their diets and how they like to have fun, these are just a few of the many different topics that are included in this book. The book ends with a few similarities that dog and cat share. These similarities are a great way for the book to end. The illustrations inside this picture book are each boxed in with a squiggly line frame that pull the picture front and center on each page. The illustrations are bright with simple lines and bright colors. The pictures made this book spectacular as they were simple but they conveyed the words that were written. I enjoyed the fact that they were not too flashy; they were bright and had a lot of white space. I liked the bright frames around the pictures and I loved the way that cat and dog were drawn. The pictures will make you smile. By looking at the pictures, children should be able to find the context clues they need to read the words that are written in the book. The text on the page is short on a few pages and longer on others. What a great book for a beginner reader for comparing two objects. I received an eARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

My dog, My cat was a very cute children’s book. I read it to my nephew (who is 3 ½) who has a dog and a cat and he loved it. He actually made me read it to him a couple more times, laughing every time. The pictures are quite cute. They are vibrant and colorful. Kids who have pets will easily be able to relate to the images and sentences in the story. The drawings also allow the reader to make sound effects and “act” out parts of the story, making kids laugh at your silly antics. I would recommend this book for any child probably under 4, but the words are simple and could be used to help your child learn to read. If your child did not have any pets, you could use this book to teach them about some of the silly things cats and dogs do.

The argument about cats and dogs has been going on for centuries. These two animals stand for almost even human's best friend on earth. Of course, many believe that dogs and cats are at war with one another. Yet, in my house, when I come out of my bedroom in the evening, the dog and cat are sitting beside each other like Patience and Fortitude - discussing the strange ways of their human beings, and the odd things we all did throughout the day. The world sees them as absolute foes, and lines have been drawn and sides have been taken for centuries. Some people are truly cat people and love the more independent animal who likes to raise his tail in the air and walk forward as if a crowd of well-wishers are waiting in the next room to throw rose petals at his feet. Whereas others are truly dog people. They love the "best friend" that they've had since childhood. The dog who has run beside them, playing baseball and Frisbee in the yard, and has slept at the foot of the bed out of pure happiness, friendship, and protection. In my house, in this case, the dog is the one with the soulful eyes that makes you want to run at all times to the pantry to fetch him yet another snack because his poor 110 pound body is slowly wasting away. This wonderful new author, Ashlee Fletcher, depicts the solid differences and similarities between the best friends and compatriots of humans. For any animal lover who truly wishes the world was full of cats and/or dogs, instead of having to deal with those 'icky' people every day of their lives, this book is a whole lot of fun. Quill Says: Go to your room and pet the cat, then take the dog out for a walk of pure and utter fun! Because without these friends of ours the world would be a much darker place!
